Abstract: "This paper examines the risks of using and not using chlorine chemicals in the water disinfection process. Water disinfection has been termed by some as the most significant public health measure of this century. When the consideration of eliminating chlorine completely surfaces, one must take a step back and try to understand more completely the risks of such a decision. This paper presents the risks associated with chlorination and its by-products. This paper also discusses with [sic] the results of not chlorinating and presents several actual consequences experienced by several countries."
